Israeli soldiers held onto positions in six Palestinian cities in the West Bank in an offensive that began after the Oct. 17 assassination of Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi. At least 11 Palestinians were killed in fierce weekend battles across the West Bank. Israeli officials said they launched the incursions to nab Palestinian terrorists planning attacks on Israelis, and they denied Palestinian claims that they are out to destroy the Palestinian Authority.
